Here’s my latest live copywriting project – a web design company who specialise in creating websites that are optimised for Middle Eastern languages reading from right-to-left (RTL), particularly Arabic, Persian and Dari. Based in the United States, Alefba target their services towards English-speaking companies who want to reach out to speakers of RTL languages and have worked with a number of not-for-profit and governmental organisations. They also offer translation and specialist publishing services as well as custom graphic design using RTL scripts and logotypes. I’ve written copy for a number of web design and development companys, but the specialist nature of Alefba’s services made this a particularly interesting project.
The brief here was to write informative and professional copy targeted to a niche market. I’ve kept the style simple and relaxed – not too wordy or overly descriptive – and have made use of bold headlines and bullet points to catch the eye and sell the key services.
